Students in Mrs. Cramer's third-grade class found a wild duck on the playground. With the help of the custodian, Mr. Dove, it was captured and given food and water. Fish and wildlife protection was called, and they referred the school to Cindy Sherlock. She came and took the duck. It was identified as a member of the "Scoter" family. It will be given good care and then released. Sherlock said that quite often migrating waterfowl just get tired and can't go on. The students wish the duck good luck.
Mr. Knudsen's class took a walking field trip to the Kenai Wetlands. The class saw decomposers and producers. The students knew there were herbivores and carnivores in the wetlands because of the many sightings of such things as feathers and tracks.
The school will participate in the Great Aluminum Can Round-up. Those wishing to participate should save cans. There is a collection box behind the school.
Today is the last day of the fall fund-raiser. All orders and monies should be turned in today.
